Sushi pizza is a variant of Japanese sushi served in Canada and the Northeastern US. It uses a slightly crispy yet chewy fried rice patty as the base and is topped with a layer of sliced avocado, a layer of sliced salmon, tuna or crab meat, a drizzle of blended mayonnaise and wasabi powder and is served in wedges. Nori, pickled ginger and roe are sometimes also served as toppings or sides.[1]

The origins of Sushi Pizza are debatable but a Japanese sushi chef at Atami Sushi Restaurant in Montreal, Quebec, claimed in 1992 that she was the inventor of the dish.[2] Due to the popularity and wide availability of the dish in Toronto it has quickly become one of the city's signature dishes, along with the Peameal Bacon Sandwich.[citation needed]
